Designed for face to face groups, this guide to essential ground rules can still be applied to online work.

Although rule 7. Be conscious of body language... would only apply in synchronous video conferences, everything else on this list hits the mark. 
From Paul Gorski's Multicultural Pavilion "Whenever you hope to facilitate conversations on social justice concerns, whether preparing for a one-hour workshop or weaving such discussions into a year-long class, a vital first step is the development of guidelines for participation. These guidelines, often referred to as "ground rules" or "community norms," should provide the community within a workshop or class a framework to ensure open, respectf...

This looks promising. The CC requirement for online video means all online teachers need to step up their game on subtitling. I was made aware of this product by Jeremiah Stanley, a tech-talented graduate student in my E-Learning Practicum class.Jeremiah reported Aegisum as "...a free, cross-platform open source tool for creating subtitles. The testing I have done with it so far let me create subtitles and load the file into YouTube and Vimeo. There is also a large number of file types you can output to with Aegisub so if the educators do not use either YouTube or Vimeo they could still caption there videos."Jeremiah and I will drive this product hard and see where it leads. 
Aegisub is a free, cross-platform open source tool for creating and modifying subtitles. Aegisub makes it quick and easy to time subtitles to audio, and features many powerful tools for styling them, including a built-in real-time video preview.

Here's a clever article that offers a 'reality check' for Hire Ed Admin. Online learning is real and effective. However, it isn't a magic bullet that can solve long term problems with the push of a button. 
Online learning has been hailed as a faster, cheaper way to provide education -- but it doesn't do half of what administrators think it will.      With the help of a few experts, we've compiled a list of major myths that administrators believe, how they match up against reality and why administrators believe them.

The authors define Netiquette as, "In this paper we use the term netiquette to mean a body of conventions and manners for using the Internet as a tool for communication or data exchange, practiced or advocated by a group of people. In this sense, netiquette includes laws, regulations, as well as good manners and practices."

The idea of a Global Netiquette is intriguing.
